My other birthday present from Slabs arrived in the mail today – a gift pack from Disaster Bay Chillies.
With a name like that, what’s not to like?
The gift pack includes Chipotle Sauce, Chilli Wine Jelly, Spicy Kasoundi and (wait for it) Hot Chilli Wine – made not from grapes, but from chillies.
Apparently the wine is best served chilled. According to the website:
the rich fruit flavours will enliven your palate, whilst a distinctive silky sweetness balances the heat of the chillies to leave a warm inner glow. A perfect accompaniment to cheese or natural oysters. Once opened, Hot Chilli Wine can happily remain in the refrigerator for several months.
It all sounds divine!
We also tried the cake after dinner tonight. Very yummy.
And for the final picture for today, it was so cold overnight it snowed. Lucky Lil Sis and Mr Tall went up the mountain to play in the snow, while I got to look at it from my window at work.
By mid-afternoon the day had warmed up and the snow had all gone.
